I was referred to Dr Howard by a top Urologist (Dr. Grossklaus | Southwest Urologic Specialists P.C.) who is an instructor at Mayo Clinic and is highly sought after and respected by his peers. I went in with an open mind and was blown away by Dr Howards knowledge, professionalism and bed side manner, truly a scholar and a gentleman. My surgery (double hernia in groin area) was flawless and recovery has been amazing. I highy recommmend this surgeon and have to many friends already. Thanks Travis!

Horable Surgeon. I had him perform a inguinal bilateral hernia repair 1 year ago. He left me with chronic pain and testicle issues. One testicle is way up high and the other way way low. About 2 inches apart in length. I now have this deformation for life. I have had constant problems since the surgery last year. He said before surgery maybe less then 10% will have problems but nothing said about making my testicles deformed. Not to mention a surprise medical bill for a surgeon assistant. BAD Dr

He listened to me, viewed results and quickly came to a conclusion about the procedure/care I needed. Very impressed. Great surgery result.
